    Windows 10 apps frequently stop working


    I've seen other people with this same problem, but the solution was complicated, and I know very little about computers. I HATE having to constantly restart my computer when this happens. My computer is older, and takes quite a while to restart, and I'm very impatient.

    Welcome to Ten-Forums !
    PC specs i see on HP seem to be fine for Windows 10, PC is 2012 not that old.
    When you say apps stop working and have to restart to resolve this, but how does the PC react at that time with other things you do ? Are these Windows store bought apps or ones that came on Windows 10 ?

    Suggestion only :

    Do a Repair install.

    Use the Tech Bench link to download the iso :
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...brrWLRbagYCa0w

    scroll down to Select Edition > click the pointer at the right and select Windows 10 > click Confirm.
    click the pointer and select Language > make sure you pick the same language the computer is now running > click Confirm
    select the bit version, 32 or 64-bit. Make sure you select the same bit version as the computer is now running.
    at the bottom, click the pointer next to Save > click Save As > navigate to a folder of your choice > click the chosen folder > click Save
    The iso will start downloading to your chosen folder.
    When it is done, go to that folder > open the folder > right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe
    Installation will begin.
    It will allow you to keep you files, settings and apps.
    No product key is required.
    Activation will be automatic.
